Church News and Notes:

Easter Lilies 
Easter Lilies are $9 each this year.  Please write “Easter lily” on your check so it goes to the correct place.  Also let the office know if you would like your Easter lily in memory or honor of anyone in particular.

 Get your order in
by tomorrow: March 18th.
 

Easter Update
 Thursday, April 1st we will have a Maundy Thursday service at 7pm.

 
Sunday, April 4th, we will have two Easter services.  The first is at 7am, and will be led by the confirmation class.  The service will be in Fellowship hall. Please come in the kitchen/choir door.
The second service will be at 9am in the sanctuary.

**If you are planning on coming to any of these services, we ask that you contact the office to get on the list as we still have to limit the number of people.**

 
In-person Worship
Don't forget to contact the office each week if you are planning on coming to in-person worship.  Due to COVID restrictions, we have to limit the number of people in attendance.

Call the church (319-334-3689) or send an email (fumcKari@gmail.com) if you would like to be on the list for Sunday's in-person worship service.  

(The service will continue to be available via Facebook, the radio broadcast and our website as usual, so if you aren’t quite comfortable coming back to in-person worship, you will still have options.)


Radio Broadcast: The next available dates to sponsor a radio broadcast:

  • April 4th

  • April 18th
